A loan of $1,025 helped to purchase a cement mixer.


Esteban's story

Esteban is a native of the community of Toracari, 170 kilometers from the city of Cochabamba, to the north of Potosí. He currently lives in the city of Cochabamba with his four children who he is in charge of. He lives in a place that he rents in a private home. He has made a living providing masonry services for a wage of 125 per day, for the past four years. His wife works as a domestic employee. The loan Esteban is requesting is for practical purposes: to purchase a cement mixer to be able to increase his work output, particularly so that he can raise his income in the next few years working individually. He states that previously they lived in communities where there was extreme poverty, which is why they have migrated to the division of Cochabamba to look for work, and so he could work as an assistant mason.
